Manchester City, last

season's Barclays Premier League champions, are second with two games remaining and will hope to remain as runners-up with victories over Swansea and, on the final day, Southampton.

This is Manchester City's final away game of the

season; previously they won 27 points on the road. Overall City have scored 77 goals - 25 fewer than last season's 102-goal haul with two games remaining - even though they netted six last time out against relegated Queens Park Rangers.

Manchester City have won their last four games, but

travel to a Swansea City side that, having shocked Arsenal 1-0 at the Emirates last season, finish the season strongly, with three straight wins.

While Manchester City are guaranteed a place in next

season's Champions League, Swansea are making a late bid for a Europa League spot. Currently eighth, the Swans are just one point behind seventh-place Southampton and two behind Spurs, in sixth.

When these teams met at the Etihad Stadium in November Wilfried Bony scored for the Welshmen, but Manchester City won 2-1. Now Bony is at Manchester City and could be involved against his former club on his first return.

Bony scored twice in this game last term, but Manchester City went on to win 3-2 thanks to a goal from Aleksander Kolarov, however, in 13 visits to Swansea, they have won five, drawn two and lost six, most recently in March 2012.
